“Providing a trusting partnership with parents where babies well-being is nurtured”
Whekī cares for babies aged from 3 months to 14-18 months. Our ratio is 1 adult to 4 bablies, and we are licensed for 19 children.
We have four permanent teachers, who are all experienced, qualified and registered, and are passionate about working with infants. We also have four permanent part-time teachers and may sometimes have staff in training at Whekī. The Whekī teachers are culturally diverse, adding richness to our Whekī team.
We provide a range of stimulating activities that help develop your child's sense of well-being, belonging, emerging communication, contribution and opportunities for exploration.
We value partnership with the children’s immediate family, as well as extended family/whānau, and we can work together to understand your child’s own individual daily rhythm. We encourage the building of warm and reciprocal relationships that foster the best learning and nurturing outcomes for all, with a strong emphasis on building trust and helping our babies to feel settled and happy in a safe and secure environment.
